"CELTIC FIRE is a wondrous treasure-house of tall 'true' stories of such well-known figures as Patrick, Brigid, Brendan, Columba, Cuthbert, and many others dear to my childhood and even dearer now. These tales of saints and beasts are a beautiful reminder that the animals are part of God's plan, doing heavenly work with often more grace than granted human beings."
-Madeleine L'Engle

"This little book will refresh and inspire your Celtic consciousness. Here are bright flashes from poets and mystics. Here are people who lived as creatures of a common, earthly creation. Here are readings to remind us all how simply life is meant to be lived and in living it simply how we find reflected eternal Mystery."
-Gertrud Mueller Nelson, author of HERE ALL DWELL FREE
